"Do microvita function in saincara and / or pratisaincara"?
Is the concept of physical complexity covered by the philosophy of the Cycle of Creation?

The question as phrased here is a deliberate attempt to place concepts of one context (microvita science) into another (philosophy), so the obvious next question is, which context needs to be served.

Shrii P.R. Sarkar however states for example: "So we find that positive microvitum sanctifies the physical body, sanctifies the psychic body and helps in spiritual elevation, not only of the human body but also of any living body; and it helps in the thought of Parama Purusa, it helps the Prati-saincara portion of Parama Purusa’s thought or conation in creating a better world" - Mobility and Movement of Microvita.

In other words, positive microvita function in some way in the physical body, which philosophically speaking is made out of the fundamental factors and therefore part of saincara, as well as in the evolving mind, which is prati-saincara. The problem is that the nature of increasing complexity of the physical structure is not clearly covered in terms of saincara and prati-saincara. The human body is neither the initial stage of prati-saincara, nor is it a mere collection of elements. Right this is the specialty of microvita science. So rather than explaining something about microvita per sé, Sarkar shows here that when it comes to actual life, saincara and prati-saincara are intimately related, if not indistinguishable. Micro-vita, micro-life, is simply the minutest or principal instance of it. Hence, there can be no psychic elevation without sanctifying the body - both are two sides of the same paper.

This does not mean that saincara and prati-saincara are a mere figment of the imagination. Even, specifically outside the biological spectrum they acquire a certain separate ostentation. They are part of a profound and exalted philosophy of creation. However in a philosophical context, replacing the term "microvita" by any convenient term, such as for example "influences", does not make any difference, which in turn shows that such a context is trivial for microvita science.

By emphasizing the intricately interwoven and interdependent prati-saincara and saincara effects in real life, rather than merely speaking of "elevating the mind", Sarkar stays away from a purely philosophical line of thinking. Afterall, the discourse is microvita related to begin with. The point being made is that positive microvita help elevate the whole human being and the whole of creation. Philosophically speaking, it certainly has saincara and prati-saincara aspects, but this is trivial with regard to microvita science.

There is a differentiation within the subjective and objective faculties creating an alltogether different scheme of interactions, introduced by P.R. Sarkar as "the impact of the inferences on the propensies" [MV&C]. This is the pitch of microvita science, allowing a more precise assessment of the processes of life which is non-existent in philosophy.

Therefore, the odds are that there is no question of a plain "overlay" of microvita cosmology and philosophy. It is indeed "a new line of thinking". Placing microvita or microvita theory inside a philosophical framework in an attempt to create an aura of understanding, is at best a trivial pursuit, and in the worse case it is a deliberate linguistical coup, "in order to conceal our limitations or hide our imperfections".

"I think, by dint of our spiritual sadhana, rather our physico-psycho-spiritual sadhana, our minds will develop in all [their] strata, and the power of conception, the power of conceiving, will also develop, and with that developed conceiving power, we will know all the secrets of these microvita".

So far for saincara and prati-saincara.
